FOI Request Parents Mental Health Information

Request 101001498841

I am looking for information from Children's Services in the Moray area, specifically statistical information regarding the mental health status of the natural parents of the children in foster care or waiting to be adopted. What percentage of children in the foster/adoption system have parents with diagnosed/suspected mental health problems? I am looking for data from the past 10 years if possible.

We don't routinely collate this info and it would only be recorded (where known) in individual's files, therefore this information would be exempt under Section12 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002- Excessive cost of compliance, as to retrieve it would exceed the £600 threshold.
